From real-life flight attendant T. J. Newman, who wrote this book at 35,000 feet while crisscrossing the country on redeye flights when her passengers were asleep, FALLING is a high-concept thriller built around a chilling question Newman would ask pilots, only to watch their faces go pale with fear: What would you do if before a flight, terrorists kidnapped your family and told you that if you did not crash the plane, your family would be killed?
